Personal care appliance maker the Gillette Company rededicated its South Boston, MA, U.S. manufacturing center and announced plans to invest U.S. $200 million over the next 3 years in the facility.

As part of the rededication ceremony, marking the company's 100th anniversary at the site, James M. Kilts, chairman, president, and CEO, said Gillette will also strengthen its community ties through significant increases in funding for philanthropic initiatives.

"This memorable anniversary offers us an opportunity to reflect on the accomplishments of the past and also to renew for the future our strong commitment to our facility, the South Boston community, the City of Boston, and the Commonwealth," Mr. Kilts said.

"It is our leading facility for the research, development, and production of premium shaving systems. Our new investment will enhance its focus on world-class shaving product innovation and manufacturing technology."
